In Topic: Recent Gulf/Atlantic ICW experience?

15 August 2014 - 12:49 PM

In reference to Hobie Dog; don't go in Cape Fear but go in at Morehead City/Beaufort inlet. The ICW from Snow's Cut/Carolina Beach to Morehead City is a lot of no wake, low bridges, shallow narrow canal and traffic. From Morehead to Norfolk is clear and open pretty much the whole way.

 

The Ga and SC ICW is twisty turny with little actual miles being made. (low VMG)  Run offshore as much as possible.

Well here goes. The 36.7 is a great light air boat. The keels are known to stay on and there are a lot on the market worldwide. Excellent value!

 

I know of a nice one in Charleston, SC.

Shit happens. No one died. Exchange insurance and move on people, nothing to see.

Stoopid question. Does boat insurance pay for damage when you are in a race? Most car insurance policies do not cover anything that happens in a sanctioned race. 

Actually, at least in the US, it is common to have your policy cover racing.  I don't know if it comes at a premium but I have been aboard several boats with big claims (lost rigs) and insurance came through.  So maybe not so stoopid (sic).

Yep, Mine came through for me.

As a resident I would seriously consider the copper river marina.  You'll be driving to the boat, loading up and leaving so the location is not too bad for that. I keep my boat at City but we live out of town, way out of town. Pretty sure ChYC lets members stay over night or 48 hours, so weekends there are possible.
